This mural, located on 12th Avenue South, sheds light on the intersectionality between Nashville’s native wildlife and the growing presence of an urban environment.
The mural was painted by local artist, Mobe Oner, and reminds visitors to ponder the challenge of coexistence between human development and natural environment in a time of tremendous and rapid growth.
Installed in February 2018, this mural was an exciting addition to the Rivive! Nashville campaign and continues to encourage residents to learn how they can make a small shift to revitalize and protect local rivers and streams, as well as the critters that depend on them.
